Founded in 1824, the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory was the first industrial unit dedicated to producing porcelain in Portugal. The factory started by producing glassware and soapstone pottery, since the composition of porcelain clay was still unknown. In 1880, Vista Alegre ceased its glassware production to focus exclusively on porcelain. Nowadays, Vista Alegre is more than an industrial unit. It is also part of the Portuguese heritage, boasting buildings of undeniable architectural interest, and a repository of social and artistic memories essential to the building of a Portuguese identity.
